I was visiting from out of town so this was my first visit and will be my last. I asked the waitress a couple of questions (two to be exact, only short answers were necessary) - then I asked one more question about an item on the kids menu, chips and cheese -- I asked if that was like nachos or what and she just looked at me like I was pretty stupid and said "it's chips and cheese" -- okkaaayyy-- woulda been nice if she'd said what that was - turns out it's shredded cheese put on top of tortilla chips and warmed up until the cheese melts -- I guess that's like it says, but still I felt like she was put out for having to answer my question -- then I had to ask for dessert and when I asked for the chocolate molten cake I said I wanted ice cream and she asked me what kind. Well, I don't know their choices so I had to ask that too. And also the ceviche they serve is not authentic ceviche like what you get in Peru, where the dish originated - this ceviche was a huge disappointment. The fish tacos I had were pretty good. At any rate, I just thought she was pretty rude - I don't recall her name but if I go back to Seattle you can bet I won't go there.
You may not be into hearty Cuban sandwiches dripping with juice, but for my money, it's totally worth showing up just to patronize and experience a business establishment devoted solely to doing one thing well without letting it take over your life, and to trusting your customers to do all the advertising you'll ever need. Just be sure to bring cash and be prepared to fend for yourself in terms of parking and seating. This place is devoted to one type of very tasty food and not much else - including cutomer convenience. Oh - and make sure they are open. These folks actually give themselves a good well earned vacation every so often and just disappear for awhile.
The BEST Cuban sandwich I've ever had. I want to try other items on the menu but I just love the #2 so much I haven't had anything else yet. There is always a line out the door, but it moves quickly., it is definitely worth the 5 min wait. There is very little seating but many parks close by. Don't miss this great Seattle restaurant!
Me and my wife love this place, this is the best puerto rican restaurant in the North West period!
